A one car accident on Beaverton Road Tuesday claimed the life of a 65-year-old Milford man.
Norman Lingnau was reported dead at the scene of the accident.
According to a release from the Clare County Sheriff’s Departments, Lingnau was driving a 2001 Mitsubishi Monterosport, which was believed to be westbound on East Beaverton Road in Grant Township when he apparently went off the road on the south side, hit a tree and rolled onto the driver’s side in the ditch.
Officers said they don’t know what caused Lingnau to lose control of his vehicle. Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.
The Clare County Accident Reconstruction Team, Clare Fire Department and the Clare City Police assisted at the scene.
